Conklin feathered his nest

What was Conklin thinking when he involved the three other liberal supervisors in his scheme to feather his own nest, with access to $508,000 of county money? Maybe he thought his political career was over, and with no taxpayer-funded retirement, he deserved more. If so, he put his needs ahead of Dryden Wilson’s desire for parks and open space for future generations, not building restoration.

Now the money is spent and we do not have any new parks for our children.

Now with the political door opened by Drew Bedwell’s resignation, Conklin is handing out flyers that state he will put an end to politics of suspicion, mistrust, intimidation, favoritism, and outside influence if we will elect him again. Again? He has already proven himself unfit for public office.

I ask that you vote for John Spencer. He will not put his needs ahead of his constituents.
